The OSU Extension Wood County Master Gardeners will be hosting its second annual "Wood County Spring Plant Exchange" beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday.
The event which is being held at the Home and Garden World Building at the Wood County Fairgrounds, will be open to the public.
From 9 to 10 a.m. will be the plant drop-off along with informational booths available to answer most horticultural questions. The information booths will focus on composting, butterfly gardens, vermiculture, native plants and much more.
Although the Master Gardeners will be giving two free plants to everyone who attends, they do encourage everyone to bring additional plants to share.
Each visitor will get one additional free plant for each one they bring. Organizers ask that folks label plants according to type if possible.
Listing the ideal or best growing conditions being listed would also be beneficial for those receiving a plant of which they may not be familiar.
The actual plant exchange time is set from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
Organizers tout, "This is a great opportunity to add new plants to your landscape and also be part of a wonderful community event."
